Control & DAQ Engineer - Wind Tunnel

Location: Woking, GB

Job Type: Fixed Term Contract  

Contract Duration: 2 years


We've recently announced a major project to create a state-of-the-art wind tunnel within the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking. 

In order to turn this vision into reality, we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced LabVIEW developer. The control and data acquisition for the new wind tunnel and associated systems will primarily be developed in-house using National Instruments real-time hardware and LabVIEW and we are looking for an individual to assist the team.

Working as part of a small team, you will develop, integrate and test software functionality for the new Wind Tunnel.

You'll be critical in developing, integrating and testing LabVIEW software functionality. Close integration with hardware and tight real-time control will be required in many areas of the project and you'll be supporting the development of the wind tunnel software.

It's a fixed term opportunity, but a significant portion of the work could be undertaken remotely if desired. However, you will need to join the team in Woking for periods of the project, such as integration and testing.

About You

You're a LabVIEW expert and have strong experience of working with NI PXI / cRIO and of real-time communications. Ideally, you'll also have experience of working with hardware-in-the-loop test systems, of EtherCAT / CAN, and of motion control, but not essential.

If you're looking for an opportunity to really get stuck into an exciting new project, apply now!
